Just as what I said in the entry “Staying In Xuzhou For 3 Days”, I was still on the train when the earthquake happened at 14:28, when the train was in the area of Anhui Province. So we were in safety and I did not fell any shock at all. After I went back to school, I am always concerning with the latest development of the rescue and aid.
The earthquake has affected a large area and produced heavy casualties. It was reported that the 8.0-magnitude earthquake that struck Wenchuan County, about 159 kilometers northwest of the provincial capital of Chengdu, has severely affected an area of more than 100,000 square kilometers. More than 50,000 people were feared dead in the 8.0-magnitude earthquake that jolted southwest China’s Sichuan Province on Monday and the confirmed death toll in Sichuan alone was 19,509 by 4 p.m. Thursday.
Everybody would tear when they gazed on the horrible pictures. It is a nightmare. In this tragic hour of horrendous loss in human lives, our words fail us in consoling those who are victims of the natural disaster and tragedy. I am to cry and to mercy. I don’t want to talk about any more. In 2008, there are too many disasters to our people and our country. Be tough! Chinese! Let’s stand together and batter the disaster. Best wishes to them!!
